Weir Wood Reservoir Nature Reserve

Weir Wood News

One end of the large (2006, due to drought the reservoir was much diminished) Weir Wood reservoir is a 152 hectare nature reserve that abuts onto the glorious Ashdown Forest. There is a small bird hide, and several footpaths around the reservoir, including one along the north shore. There is some decent rock climbing at the eastern end of the reservoir.

Highlights: Great crested grebes breed here and the occasional osprey stops off on migration. Grey heron, Snipe, Green Sandpiper, Little Egret, a wide variety of ducks and Little grebe can all be seen here and a Night heron put in an appearance in 2006. There have been regular sightings of ospreys in 2012.

Location South of East Grinstead off the B2110 or East of Forest Row.
Grid Reference: TQ394347
